If you're fine with 4.2-4.5GHz then just get the Hyper 212 and don't bother with the D14. That's a lot of money when an Ivy at 4.2GHz is basically the best gaming chip on the planet.

No! This is OCN! We must persevere towards better! Why go lower than what you can truly achieve!

Lol I could care less. Its going underwater anyway. Its just a temp heatsink that would work great. Doesn't matter if its a noctua or phanteks ..

Well just use that until you get a custom loop. No need to buy a $80 air cooler just to shave a handful of degrees. That's all I'm trying to say. Also you could join us over at the delidded crew to see how far you can really push your chip!

Hi.

Im going to be buying a 3570k soon but I cannot justify the cost of z77. Z68 has all the features that z77 has, and the few that it doesnt have, ive seen 100% of the time that the specific motherboard has the features anyways.

sata 3, usb 3, pci3, i won't be using any of these features, p67/z68 motherboards have these features, and they aren't even noticeable nowadays even if you do have them and use them.

The real differences I think in z77/z68 vs p67, is just intel srt (im only using a single ssd), quicksync (not utilized by any programs i use), and lucid virtu (crap program, just for energy efficiency anyways and i dont care about that).

However, I have 2 concerns, and it's actually more about the motherboards than p67/z68:

1. I need a motherboard that overclocks well, and allows voltage control. I know, for example, some lower end ga, p867 lx/le, msi 41/43 boards dont allow voltage control.

2. The board, I'd prefer, supports SLI (not a big deal, but just let me know).

Is there something where p67 cannot do sli with ivy bridge?

I'm totally aware that in order to support ivb, a p67/z68 needs a bios flash. I'll be buying $10 for a bios chip or buying it used, dont worry about that. I'd just rather pocket $100+ in savings from a z77 chipset, and buying p67/z68, than buying an overprice4d z77 just because of out of box ivy support (and some gen 3 z68's even have native z68 support out of box these days, and even have pci 3.0 support).

But a z68 asus maximus iv gene 3 goes for $120, and it's over $200+ for z77. There's plenty of budget GA and EVGA boards, but apparently they had a ton of ivb issues at release. Now it's been a year, but google results dont exactly bring up 20 pages of "hey guys, my ga is no trouble at all!".

Thanks.

You only have to flash the bios if the Z68 board is Gen 3. A regular Z68 board you don't have to do anything. Z68 & Z77 isn't that big of price difference, but if I were buying a new 3570K, I would go with a Z77 board. It's the best technology & newest that Intel has with real PCI-E 3.0

i got a good deal on my asrock z77 extreme 3. i think theyre around 120 on newegg now, its got everything you asked for, sli, voltage control. Its definitely one of the best priced mobos out there i'd say. NTM you may not need/want some of the features now but down the road its nice to have those extra upgrades like sata 3 and pci 3.0. I'd say getting the newest tech at the old Z68 prices would be your best option

yea... but like the biostar z68+ something is aorund $60? and its got everything but sli (its got crossfire though).

I am not going to pay a price premium for sli, i just thought if all these boards were so expensive that you might as well pick one for sli. I'm just looking for the cheapest board with voltage control and good overclockability, that isn't gimped. i think hardocp said the extreme4 z68 was gimped with overclocking.

You only have to flash the bios if the Z68 board is Gen 3. A regular Z68 board you don't have to do anything. Z68 & Z77 isn't that big of price difference, but if I were buying a new 3570K, I would go with a Z77 board. It's the best technology & newest that Intel has with real PCI-E 3.0

I'm using a GTX 460 768mb. I will not need pci 3.0....

Furthermore, even if I was using a gpu that used pci-e 3.0, that 'cheapest' one that does is the GTX 680. Which I wont get for at least 5+ years. I will only be playing sc2 for the next 5+ years (at least 2 years, ie upgrade cycle...). and the gtx 460 is actually too powerful for sc2 (its an old game...). And benches show that gtx 680 is less than 10%, like only 3% improvement, and only in max payne 3, for pci 3.0 over 2.0.

So I REALLY do not need pci 3.0.

So you sound like you know what you are talking about, but your post isn't really helpful simply because you are so focused on pci 3.0 - something that isn't really useful as it is, and that i wont be using.

What do you mean you only have to flash on gen3? I thought gen3 was like the newer board, and that some gen3 boards you didnt have to flash actually. You really can just plug and play a z68 as long as it's not a gen3? And whatever, I'll be buying the board either used with the newest bios (i contact the seller) OR I'll get a bios replacement chip. I dont consider the bios thing an issue.

but $125, would you rather have an asus maximus iv gene 4 z68, or an extreme 3? It's no question, right? Or p67 sabertooth for $70, or a G41 z77? right?

I am not going to pay a price premium for sli, i just thought if all these boards were so expensive that you might as well pick one for sli. I'm just looking for the cheapest board with voltage control and good overclockability, that isn't gimped. i think hardocp said the extreme4 z68 was gimped with overclocking.

You only have to flash the bios if the Z68 board is Gen 3. A regular Z68 board you don't have to do anything. Z68 & Z77 isn't that big of price difference, but if I were buying a new 3570K, I would go with a Z77 board. It's the best technology & newest that Intel has with real PCI-E 3.0

I'm using a GTX 460 768mb. I will not need pci 3.0....

Furthermore, even if I was using a gpu that used pci-e 3.0, that 'cheapest' one that does is the GTX 680. Which I wont get for at least 5+ years. I will only be playing sc2 for the next 5+ years (at least 2 years, ie upgrade cycle...). and the gtx 460 is actually too powerful for sc2 (its an old game...). And benches show that gtx 680 is less than 10%, like only 3% improvement, and only in max payne 3, for pci 3.0 over 2.0.

So I REALLY do not need pci 3.0.

So you sound like you know what you are talking about, but your post isn't really helpful simply because you are so focused on pci 3.0 - something that isn't really useful as it is, and that i wont be using.

What do you mean you only have to flash on gen3? I thought gen3 was like the newer board, and that some gen3 boards you didnt have to flash actually. You really can just plug and play a z68 as long as it's not a gen3? And whatever, I'll be buying the board either used with the newest bios (i contact the seller) OR I'll get a bios replacement chip. I dont consider the bios thing an issue.

but $125, would you rather have an asus maximus iv gene 4 z68, or an extreme 3? It's no question, right? Or p67 sabertooth for $70, or a G41 z77? right?

Do you happen to live near a Microcenter or anything like that?
